Just a few quick questions, since it seems people like to answer questions on here, unlike some of the other forums I have frequented. I have a poor undergraduate GPA, probably will graduate in three semesters with a 2.9-3.0. I am planning on going to do a little research and learn more in nutritional biochemistry at either University of Illinois or University of Texas- Austin. I am doing this because ultimately I want to work with athletes and help design nutritional supplements to aid in exercise recovery and to help boost physical performance. Of course this is what I want to do on the side of operating a Sports Medicine clinic, that would still serve the general population, but would be mostly cater to athletes in the area. Now I am going to do everything I know to do to get in. I am in the process of shadowing and I will be studying for the MCAT over next summer just before I graduate. So I can take it in the spring before matriculation into the masters program. Assuming I do well in my post-bacc classes, can I hope that those extra two years will at least divert some of the attention from my poor undergrad work? And does what I am planning on doing right now, sound like a reasonable approach toward my goal? Basically I am trying to waste as little time as possible now that I have truly found what I want to do. Any info or stories of other successes would be great.
